“She loves shiny things…”

Sitting. Sidewalk lacks lumbar support. You kick loose asphalt.

Speakers beat a ruckus at your back; brightest house on the block…

“But he don’t see the reality…”

Bad Cop rock a Raconteurs approach to rock, with ample piano punctuating and grizzly guitar fuzz. Think “Top Yourself” with more upbeat verve.

Spaced-out vocals enrapture – fusing with the fuzz and pulsing over danceable distortion. The lyrics imply an innocent, fated encounter lurks round the bend for two alternative souls mixed-up in some glistening metropolis. Haven’t met, yet must meet…
